Timsgiving

November 22 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$40

Timsgiving is a fundraiser and festive celebration of life honoring Timothy “Timmy” Michael Thompson. Timmy died tragically 15 years ago in 2004 at the age of 24 after struggling with opioid use disorder.

This event will honor Timmy by eating, laughing, listening to music, and sharing stories, together, and giving back to causes that would be meaningful to Timmy, including Community Music School of Springfield.

“We’ve partnered with the Community Music School of Springfield (CMSS) to support their percussion program, including studio space and financial aid for students. Timmy was a drummer in local heavy metal bands Face and 6thirty7. He recorded multiple albums and had the opportunity to tour up and down the east coast in the late 90s and early 00s. Timmy and his bandmates also performed at Locobazooka—an annual outdoors music festival held in New England showcasing heavy metal acts.

We are giving back to CMSS’ percussion program, which offers individual lessons, ensembles, and classes for people of all ages in our community to learn everything from basic concepts of rhythm, drum and stick techniques, and musicality, to complex arrangements in a variety of musical genres. Some areas of study include: bucket drumming group, drum set, hand drums, Latin percussion, and symphonic percussion.”

In addition to feeling really good about giving back for Timmy, here’s what your $40 ticket gets you:

  • A bounty of delicious flavors catered by Nosh

  • A drink ticket for one beer or glass of wine

  • Musical performances

  • Raffles and silent auction

  • Speakers from our partner organizations

  • Shopping at the Serendipity boutique

  • Connect with faces old and new

  • Feast and merriment in honor of Timmy
